It’s Grill Time! Shrimp Scampi

My in-laws had us over for a delicious dinner last weekend with shrimp scampi on the grill and wheat pasta with garlic sauce for the main entree. The shrimp scampi were absolutely delicious and a nice break from the typical burgers, dogs, steak, or chicken on the grill. Grilling is such a great way to get take full advantage of the beautiful summer weather AND a very healthy way to prepare food as well. Other than marinating the shrimp, it’s {Read More}

Cicada – What the Heck Are These Bugs Doing Here?

I was teaching my outdoor fitness class a couple of weeks ago and one of my students said she wouldn’t see me until the cicadas are gone. I slightly remember the last time the cicadas made an appearance, but it was a looooooooooooong time ago. She said she was so scared of them and wasn’t planning on working out outside until they were gone. Then I went for a walk in the park with my husband and daughter and saw {Read More}

Standing Desk – Sitting is the New Smoking

How many hours do you sit each day? I only sit during meetings now. When I am at my desk, I am standing up. Not only do I have more energy, but you actually burn more calories when you are standing versus sitting. I also tend to move around more since I am already standing up. This is my new set-up at home with a tall dresser and I do the same thing at work with a taller file cabinet. {Read More}

I liked that it was a fast paced game and challenged players to remember the order {Read More}
